By the time this item appeared in print, the Balkan War (1912-1913), was over however some of the swells of Europe put their crowned heads together and collectively came up with the best Medeival plan they could think of in order to insure the promise of peace. The plan was to have:

the Czar's daughter, Grand Duchess Olga (1895 - 1918), would wed Serbia's Crown Prince Alexander

the Czar's second daughter, Grand Duchess Tatiana (1897 - 1918), was promised to Rumania's Crown Prince Charles (1893 - 1959)

All concerned agreed that Rumania's Pricess Elizabeth (1894 - 1956) and Crown Prince George of Greece (1890 - 1947) would make a simply splendid couple (they divorced in 1935).
